Lemon Curd and Fresh Fruit Phyllo Tarts Dessert, Easter Recipes, Fruit Desserts, Pies and Tarts, Seasonal Recipes, Spring Recipes | 1 comment These little tarts are really fun for a spring dessert. Phyllo dough shells are brushed with melted DOVE® PROMISES® Milk Chocolate and then filled with, fruit fruit, lemon curd or pudding, and an extra touch of chocolate with a DOVE® PROMISES® Milk Chocolate. I filled my Phyllo Tarts with lemon curd as suggested in the recipe, but I think it would also be really fun to try out this fresh raspberry curd or orange curd.

Lately, I've been getting a hankering for cookies in the late afternoon.

Being The Ninj, I don't keep cookies around the house unless I have made them myself. Adventures of the Kitchen Ninja
Hallo, Just when we started to settle down in Calgary, the gypsy in me came through. One move to Edmonton, one new job for me and a new daycare for Birdie later and it is December…. How come that I blink and a month is gone by? Prairiesummers
local kitchen I loved this cake. I loved its perfectly imperfect messy abandon. I loved its sweet-tart Meyer cloud cream, made with the very last of my Meyer lemon stash, and generously dolloped between layers of cake.

Bless me interwebs, for I have sinned. It's been over a month since my last posting.

I was first introduced to the buttery treat on a sunny day in Seattle a few summers ago by Ashley who kindly informed me that it was the best thing in the pastry case at Honore in Ballard.

Tastes Better with Friends — I cannot tell you how many times I have been sitting in some public area, enjoying a few puffs on my electronic cigarette, and gotten looks. Sometimes these looks are hostile, because the people are assuming that I’m smoking a regular tobacco cigarette. In most cases, however, the looks I get are simply curious.
